That is the reality. Throw away all the blogs, articles and books that get cited here so often and that's the bottom line. In my daily interaction with doctors of all disciplines, when asked that is what you'll hear with the rare exception.
Some will say that is all due to drug company brain washing, but that's just nonsense. These doctors are citing extablished medical protocol which is the result of thousands of hours and billions of dollars of research. They have read the reports and they agree with the findings and they manage their practices accordingly. Now is the established medical protocol correct? That may be up for debate as circumstances may change.
There will be doctors and rsearchers that disagree, but in reality their number compared to the number of physicians in practice is very, very insignificant.
Just have a talk with your doctor, don't assume it's the statin. It may be, but your doctor needs to determine if it's the cause. He may be able to adjust your meds or suggest life style changes.View Thread
